Thousands of Mirror readers sign up to our Fair Price for Power campaign
THOUSANDS of you have flocked to support the Mirror’s Fair Pric
e for Power campaign. Faced with a surge in energy bills just ahead o
r and the prospect of bumper profits for energy firms, we decided to take suppliers to task. We are calling on them to pass any substantial drop in wholesale costs to customers, simplify deals and cut price gaps.
But we believe the only way to get to the bottom of claims that cus2020第67期管家婆彩图 tomers are being shortchanged is a
Competition Commission inquiry.
Readers have s
wung behind us by returning their coupons. Sylvia Edney, 77, from Whitstable, Kent, was one. She said: “I think the price rises and profits are disgusting. I’m behind the Mirror 100%.” Britain has had e
nough of power companies raking in massive p
rofits while the elderly and hard-up struggle to heat their homes. Back our campaign today and send
a message to the government and fuel bosses that it is time for a fair price on fuel. 1. Pledge to drop bills as soon as wholesale energy prices fall 2. Cut gap betwe
en standard and other tariffs 3. Use cold weather payment data to target rebates at vulnerable households 4. Launch Competition Commission inquiry into market 5. Limit number of tariffs firms can offer and simplify them
